I’m a huge fan of huge graphic treatments. And as far as patriotism is concerned, more is more. Whether it’s your native country or just a flag from a land you love, get an instant bohemian world traveler vibe at home by working in an oversized flag on the wall.
An exposed brick wall has become a popular feature in interior design. Leaving a wall bare with the bricks visible can give an apartment, home or loft an industrial and unconventional touch and adds character to the interior.

As a wall décor it can be very stylish and cool for your living room.
While millions of homes are built with staircases, very few homeowners actually use this additional space underneath them. However, properly decorating and setting up this otherwise wasted space will offer multiple benefits.
#1 – Home Office
One solution that’s incredibly easy and efficient is to turn the area into a functional home office. Depending on the size and shape of your staircase, this may or may not be easy. All that’s required to accomplish this is to install a desk, electrical outlet and light in the space.
#2 – Storage
If you can’t seem to find enough room to store all of your clothes and belongings, then you should turn this area into a storage area with custom drawers. You can store additional clothes, books, DVDs, electronics, remote controls, mail or practically anything else you can think of.
#3 – Bookshelf
A third option is to turn the additional space into a large bookshelf. This technique is especially beneficial for staircases in the foyer and/or living room. Installing one in the open communal area such as a foyer staircase will provide a stylish touch, helping to achieve a more attractive and complete home decor.
#4 – Lounging Area
As long as there’s enough space, you can turn the area underneath a staircase into a full lounge area. The dark, cozy atmosphere is perfect for kicking back and relaxing. Lounge areas are ideal for kicking back and catching a daytime nap.
